The Road to Ruin (1934) PD
Bill and Coo (1948) PD
Blackmail (1929) PD

Lassie Come Home (1943) Book and Movie renewed
Journey into Fear (1943) Renewed R480073 1970
I'll Be Seeing You (1945) Play and movie renewed
Beat Girl (1959) GATT/URAA
Coach of the Year (1980) Contains notice
The Unknown War (TV Series) (1978) GATT/URAA
The Wild, Wild World of Jayne Mansfield (1968) GATT/URAA

and what is about Canadian and Australian Newsreels and propaganda/training films from the second world war ??

Australian and Canadian law has a 50 year term for news and documentary footage, so any news footage from 1945 or before from Canada or Australia is PD in the US. Footage from 1946 onwards is caught up in GATT/URAA and gets a 95 year US copyright term, even after it has entered the PD in the country-of-origin and countries with rule of the shorter term.

Here's one vote for BILL AND COO! A delightfully wacky film in which the main roles are played by BIRDS! I haven't seen this in 25 years, and look forward to viewing it again, and to prove to family members that I didn't hallucinate the whole thing! :)

Yep, it's hard enough directing people, but...birds? lol :)

As I recall, Bill and Coo is a very cute movie.

I thought somewere earlier the discussion about the "Road to"-films was already started on this forum. And I also thought that in that discussion it became clear that Road to Bali is the only one of those films that is PD.

By the way K-Otic, have you found "The Deadly Companions" somewere, so that you could upload it. I am a big Peckinpah fan and I would really like to see this film.

This is not one of those Hope-Crosby films. Look at the year (1934).

Just for fun, I had my system check the inventory of these p.d. dealers:
Filmchest
Buyout
Desert_Island
Festival

Results:
BEAT GIRL (Desert_Island)
BILL AND COO (Desert_Island)
BLACKMAIL (Desert_Island, Filmchest)
COACH OF THE YEAR (Desert_Island, Filmchest)
ROAD TO RUIN (Filmchest)

Of course, Video-Cellar's verdict is what counts.

Ack! I would kill for the original, unbutchered version of Beat Girl!!! Well, that's a bit harsh.

But still, I guess the current version out there on DVD is a mangled mess, making the original VHS cut, quite a catch. Sadly, I doubt it's PD.
